8 Moves That Reduce your Side Fat Quickly

By  | 

There’s nothing to love about the excess fat at the sides of your waistline. The muscles underneath that layer of fat are known as your obliques. Although their function is to rotate your torso, it’ll take more than torso rotations to get rid of the side fat. Reducing fat in one area of your body isn’t possible. Instead, focus on losing weight from your entire body, and as the fat reduces, so will the fat around your middle.’

The side bridge is a good exercise to work the oblique muscles that lie beneath your side flab. Working and tightening these muscles will create a slimmer waistline. Lie on your right side on the floor or exercise mat.

How To Do:

  • Support your upper body on your right elbow, place your left hand on your hips, stack and extend your legs.
  • While exhaling, contract the muscles on the right side of your abdomen to lift your hips off the floor.
  • Pause at the top of the movement then slowly lower back to the floor.
  • Complete 10 to 20 repetitions then repeat the exercise with your left side.

How To Do:

  • Place the other arm after one arm is down.
